Well it's Saturday and today is my actual 1 year blog anniversary (yay)! It's also the last giveaway in my week of giveaway's everyday.
I can't believe it's been a whole year already. My first post seems like yesterday and forever ago all rolled into one. It took me so long to write and really wasn't even that good, but it was a start.
One thing's for sure though- posting that first time I never would have imagined that one year later I'd have the type of week this one's been. Really, this has been so much fun!
Now down to business. Here it is....
The piéce de la résistance. Arguably one of the most coveted crafty materials out there at the moment. (I almost didn't get it because the craft store has been sold out for weeks...)
Cue the music from 2001: A Space Odyssey-
The Martha Stewart essential glitter set! 24 Glorious Shimmery Jewel- like colors.
When I first saw this set I wanted it... badly. In fact I stalked it in the craft store for over a month. Casually walking by a few times whenever I was there (I'm pretty sure they thought I might steal it I looked at it so many times). I will also fess up to one (ok- two) trips especially to contemplate (alright!! gaze at) this set.
I don't even normally go for glitter all that much. Sure, I had some in the craft stash for emergencies. And that seemed good enough until I saw all those colors... oh the colors...
Hematite (not mere silver), onyx, lapis lazuli and florentine gold!
But I couldn't- in fact wouldn't buy it at the price they were charging (I mean it's glitter not actual jewel dust). Despite that I just couldn't get these gorgeous colors out of my mind.
When I unwrapped my set on Christmas I was ridiculously excited- thrilled really!
But it hit me- part of the reason I was so excited was because I really never would have bought this set for myself.
And I bet I'm not alone.
So if you've wanted this glitter but can't bring yourself to buy it this one's for you.
